There's A New Royal Baby On The Way

Move over, Prince George and Princess Charlotte!

Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip of Sweden are expecting their first baby, according to an official statement from the Swedish Royal Court. ​'We are so happy and excited to announce that we are expecting our first child. We are very much looking forward to it,' said the couple. 


The little prince or princess is due in April 2016 and will be fifth in line for the Swedish throne.

Future parents Carl Philip and Sofia were married in June at a lavish ceremony at Stockholm's Royal Palace, attended by royals from all over Europe. Before they met, Carl Philip was a notorious playboy and race car driver, and Sofia worked as a reality TV star and lingerie model, so their little tyke is pretty much guaranteed to be a royal handful. Can't wait!
